just out of curiosity this one

 

work has issued us all with a locker and declaired that no personal items will be allowed in work - they must be all kept in the locker

 

to go with this they have issued us all with a yale combination padlock

 

i have demonstrated why these padlocks are not secure to my manager, basically by popping his open in under a minute

 

after this i asked if i could fit my own padlock - which was refused

i also asked if i could have a key padlock not combination - refused

 

if i can demonstrate the padlock is unsafe but work insists i use it can i insist that they hold some liability for anything left in there?

Your locker, no reason you cant use your own lock, provided you supply them with a key. Especially if the lock they supplied is not fit for purpose.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Hi labrat,

 

I don't know if they would hold any sort of liability for anything you left in the locker, I'd think if they allowed you to bring in your own padlock you'd have to give them a key so they could access the locker if need be.


 
 

Any advice I give is honest and in good faith.:)

If in doubt, you should seek the opinion of a Qualified Professional.
